From bite-sized trips to gastronomic odysseys, Mumbaikars geared up to get munching, crunching, sipping and slurping just like the locals. After all, there is no better way to experience a culture than through its food. The ISUZU XFood Festival was the ticket to a journey through the length and breadth of the country and beyond - through food! It was the rarest and most exotic food from India and the world, cooking demos, talented chefs, fellow foodies, local and international specialities that were unique, remote and rare. The labour-intensive cuisine and its mix of local, hidden flavours. 

Every region in India has its own unique cuisine indigenous to that locale and ISUZU XFood Festival bought just that and lots more. From Pahadi cuisine in Kumaon, delicacies from a tribal village, cuisines from the mountains of Ladakh, Toddy shops of Kerala to international cuisines including American, Spanish and Mexican, ISUZU XFood Festival had it all.  The first edition of the ISUZU XFood Festival was held on November 16 and 17 at Turf Club in Mahalaxmi.
